The 17th modern running of Falcon Motor Club's March Hare
Trial, the only Classic Reliability Trial to be held in the
Chilterns, will take place on Sunday 1st March 2015.
2008 saw a major milestone being passed as that years event marked the 50th anniversary of the very first March Hare Trial. Remarkably the 2015 event will still use some of the sections from the very first event.
The organising team every year comprises of well known and experienced trials competitors, thus guaranteeing a superb event in the beautiful countryside of Hertfordshire, Bedfordshire and Buckinghamshire.
Both the start and finish are again at the friendly Chequers Inn, Redbourn, just 3 miles from the M1 junction 9. Trailer & tow car parking is available a short distance away. Breakfast, snacks and drinks will be available from 7.30am, and post-event meals/refreshments are on offer at very reasonable prices [the venue is a 'Chef & Brewer' Pub/Restaurant, and booking is not necessary]. Competitors are strongly encouraged to patronise the venue in order to ensure the facilities remain available for future use.
The event is now "Clubman" and is open to Falcon Motor Club members and members of Stroud & District M.C., MGCC, VSCC, Eastbourne & Ram M.C., West Suffolk M.C., Farnborough & District M.C., Eastwood & District M.C. and the MCC. A further 5 invitations to other clubs are available on a first come first served basis. A competition licence is not required. And as the event is limited to 50 starters potential competitors are advised to enter early as the event has previously been over-subscribed.

DUE TO THE PREVAILING WEATHER CONDITIONS FALCON MOTOR CLUB TOOK THE SOCIALLY RESPONSIBLE DECISION TO CANCEL THE 2014 MARCH HARE TRIAL
The Club issued the following statement:
"With several approach roads flooded and all our venues completely water-logged, it is with regret, but no surprise, that we have to cancel this year’s March Hare Trial. Thank you if you offered to help and for your entry if you had entered. The March Hare will return next year refreshed and hopefully drier." 13th February 2014
For the second year in succession around 1 second separated the top two. This time Liam Rafferty edged out Dean Partington to take overall honours. There were 5 clean sheets altogether.
